Grow Pro

WEBSITE PROPOSAL

 

Introduction

Thank you for the opportunity to submit a proposal for the design of the Grow Pro website.

Working together, we believe we can create a site that is simple to navigate and has a professional yet welcoming design.

Based on our previous discussions on the phone, we have identified and listed below the Needs and Solutions that we will want to address in this project.

Needs

Grow Pro needs a website to reach out to the community and also to serve and support the Grow Pro clients.  The two primary functions of the website are to allow visitors to create an account on the website and then allow for 24/7 communication and data submission for consultation clients.  The site has to be appealing, yet easy to use, as well as educational to help potential clients understand what Grow Pro has to offer.

Solutions

Buzzhive Marketing will provide Grow Pro with a fresh new web design that is easy to navigate and provides useful information to potential and current clients. The design will also convey to potentials that Grow Pro is a professional, reliable company.

This site for Grow Pro will also include a robust membership platform allowing users to create an account, communicate with Grow Pro in a private system, and upload their progress reports to help Grow Pro better assist users with their crop growth.

The consultation submission functionality being built in this first phase of the new website build will collect all information needed for each type of client and pass on directly to the in-house team to integrate into their workflow.

Content Management System

Central to the esign from Buzzhive Marketing will be a robust Content Management System (CMS) that will allow Grow Pro to make changes easily to the website, without requiring a dedicated workstation or additional software.  Not only will the CMS save Grow Pro website revision costs but it will also ensure that the website stays fresh and up to date.

Workflow

Preliminary Design

Buzzhive Marketing will provide a preliminary design concept for the new website based on market research and their professional experience.  That design concept will include the basic layout, color palette, font choices, etc.

The Grow Pro team can, at that point, request design revisions within the scope of the Fee Schedule (see below).

This design will be the starting point to get Grow Pro and Buzzhive Marketing ‘on the same page’ as far as design is concerned so that the end product is the perfect fit.

Integration of Content Management System

Once the design is approved, then Buzzhive Marketing will incorporate the Content Management System into the design.

Training

Buzzhive Marketing will provide video tutorials, specific to the new the Grow Pro website, showing how to use the Content Management System.

Launch

When Grow Pro has finished incorporating all the content they wish to have at launch, they will ask Buzzhive Marketing to move the website from the development sub-directory to the main root level of the domain, thereby making the site go live. Congratulations!

Free One Year Hosting

As part of our current CMS package, we are offering a free first year hosting.  Annual hosting renews at $99/year for standard hosting.

If, in the future, Grow Pro enters into a separate agreement with Buzzhive Marketing for marketing or support, the hosting fee is included with those subscription services.

If Grow Pro will be hosting the new build of the site on their own hosting, Buzzhive Marketing will install the site and no additional fee, assuming they have appropriate access to the hosting to upload files, create and manage databases, etc.  Buzzhive Marketing does not support third-party hosting if errors arise, but will do their best to work with that third party hosting to offer the best product possible for Grow Pro.

The development of the site will be done on Buzzhive Marketing servers and viewed at a subdomain (something similar to ‘growpro.buzzhive-marketing.com’) upon receipt of the final deposit, the site will go live on the final URL and/or be moved to it’s final hosting location.

Fee Schedule

If Grow Pro wishes Buzzhive Marketing to go forward with the project, here is the schedule for payments of the fee:

Total Web Design & Build Fee – $1,500

50% due upon acceptance of the proposal before work commences

50% due in order to launch the website

Buzzhive Marketing will complete the site with the content provided within 30 days of the initial deposit.  The site will be ready to launch and will expect that Grow Pro will be ready to launch at that same time, unless further arrangements have been made.

Terms and Conditions

Once project fee is paid in full to Buzzhive Marketing any elements of text, graphics, photos, contents, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to Grow Pro for inclusion in website are owned by Grow Pro.

Buzzhive Marketing assumes Grow Pro has permission from the rightful owner to use any images or design elements that are provided by Grow Pro for inclusion in the website, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend Buzzhive Marketing from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements.

Buzzhive Marketing will request the right, with full explanation, to display graphics and other Web content elements as examples of their work in their portfolio and as content features in other projects.

The agreement contained in this contract constitutes the sole agreement between Grow Pro and Buzzhive Marketing regarding all items included in this agreement.

Confidentiality

Both Buzzhive Marketing and Grow Pro acknowledge that in connection with this Agreement they may receive certain confidential or proprietary technical and business information and materials of the other party. Each party, its agents and employees shall hold and maintain in strict confidence all Confidential Information, shall not disclose Confidential Information to any third party, and shall not use any Confidential Information except as may be necessary to perform its obligations under this Proposal and Scope except as may be required by a court or governmental authority. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information shall not include any information that is in the public domain or becomes publicly known through no fault of the receiving party, or is otherwise properly received from a third party without an obligation of confidentiality.

Next Steps

To proceed with this project, Grow Pro is required to take the following steps:

  1. Accept the proposal “as is” or discuss desired changes. Please note that changes to the scope of the project can be made at any time, but additional charges may apply.
  2. Submit initial payment of 50% of total project fee.

Once these steps have been completed we will begin the project.
